Drone Detection System Deployed at Abbotsford Airshow; Located Drones and Pilots More Than 20 Kilometres Away

Drone Detection System Deployed at Abbotsford Airshow; Located Drones and Pilots More Than 20 Kilometres Away

A sophisticated system for detecting, identifying and pinpointing drones was used as an additional layer of security at August’s Abbotsford International Airshow, one of Canada’s premiere aviation events. This technology significantly reduced any risk that a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) could intrude on a busy airspace, whether intentionally or unintentionally. Using a system provided […] A sophisticated system for detecting, identifying and pinpointing drones was used as an additional layer of security at August’s Abbotsford International Airshow, one of Canada’s premiere aviation events.
